  • 5 colorful vocabulary cards and 4 blank cards
  • Student vocabulary graphic organizer to infer meaning of words and provide context clues
  • Vocabulary activity options and photographs representing each word
  • Students sequence story events on post-its. This can be done independently or with partners. Just print one page of post-its per group. Students sort and stick on a sentence strip. Then, practice retelling the story in their own words.
  • For those who are ready, students retell the story through writing. They may use the boxes to sketch/label or plan their retelling with key words from the text. Then, students write their retelling on the lines.
  • Students sequence picture cards that display Robot’s changing feelings on a timeline. Then, students write what Robot thought about or said in each speech bubble, demonstrating their understanding of Robot’s changing feelings.
  • Students consider Robot’s “robot” qualities and “human” qualities based on his actions throughout story events. Students list examples on a t-chart.
  • Students think about Robot’s thoughts and actions to complete the character graphic organizer. Then, students name character traits that best describe Robot.
  • Students imagine Robot in a different setting (i.e. birthday party, school, etc.). Then, students write and illustrate what might happen in those new situations.
  • Students write their own robot story using a Robot Word Bank. Two differentiated versions are included.
  • Students respond to and illustrate a variety of responses in a Robot is in Love mini-book. There are eight quarter pages. If copied front to back, you will use 1 piece of paper per student. Just copy, cut, and staple!
